Lady Gaga 'enormously disappointed' with the Us government
Lady Gaga is 'enormously disappointed' the US government has failed to the military's homophobic 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' legislation.

The eccentric singer ' who is a staunch supporter of gay rights ' is stunned the policy was not revoked during a vote in the US Senate yesterday (21.09.10). The decision means gay service members will continue to be forced to keep quiet about their sexuality.

Writing on her official website, she said: 'Today was an enormous disappointment, for myself, and for many young American people. I will keep fighting, I will not give up.

' am passionate about the rights of the LGBT Community (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) and SLDN (Service Members Legal Defense Network) and I will continue to activate as many young people as I can, and encourage them to get politically involved in their future.'

The 'Alejandro' hitmaker also criticised the decision to not let American citizens watch the debate.

She explained: 'Legislative procedure is being abused to stop public business, public debates, from happening while America is watching. There was a debate today, we just didn't get to watch it.

'nstead, it has been customary now for antiquated procedures and partisan politics to take precedence over debate, America's needs, and today over the needs of US troops.'

Senate Republicans blocked the Democrat bill to lift the controversial policy with a 56-43 vote.
